You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight’s shows, but here are some highlights…
Gatecreeper, Exhumed, Necrot, Judiciary @ Brooklyn Bazaar
Relapse labelmates Gatecreeper and Exhumed are on a co-headlining tour supporting their respective new albums, Deserted and Horror, which both came out the same day last month. Gatecreeper have been on the rise as one of the better new hardcore-inflected death metal bands around, while the veteran Exhumed proved to be as gory as ever on Horror. Making the tour even better is rising death metallers Necrot and metallic hardcore crew Judiciary.
Dave @ Bowery Ballroom
UK rapper Dave's Psychodrama is winner of this year's Mercury Prize, and it's not hard to see why he's catching on. It's one of the more powerful, incisive rap records to come out on either side of the Atlantic this year, and he supports it with this sold-out NYC show tonight.
Moon Duo, Taraka, DJ Sacred Bones @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Inspired by rave and disco, Moon Duo's new album, Stars Are the Light, is unlike any they’ve made before…while still sounding like a Moon Duo record.
Purple Pilgrims, C. Lavender, Faten Kanaan @ Union Pool
New Zealand duo Purple Pilgrims recently released their sophomore album Perfumed Earth via Flying Nun. Sisters Valentine and Clementine Nixon made the record in a “wooden sanctuary hidden deep in the wilds of Tapu” and it definitely sounds like they were in touch with the children of the forest on this beautiful album. (Think a more arboraceous Cocteau Twins or Beach House.) This is the second of their three Tuesday residency at Union Pool.
Ariana Grande, Social House @ Barclays Center
Ariana Grande dominated the pop charts with her most recent albums Sweetener and Thank U, Next, and her tour is in the NYC-area this week.
Ghostemane, 3TEETH, Candy, Horus the Astroneer, Parv0 @ Webster Hall
Metal/punk-friendly rapper Ghostemane has put together a very genre-diverse lineup for this tour, which includes rising industrial band 3TEETH, rising hardcore band Candy, and more.
David Cross @ Union Hall
David Cross tested out the stand-up material that became the 2018 Oh Come On tour at a bunch of shows he called “Shootin’ the Shit, Seein’ What Sticks” that mostly happened at Brooklyn’s Union Hall. He’s shootin’ the shit again.
